Uda City Haibara Fireworks Display, All Japan Fireworks Mahoroba Competition (宇陀市はいばら花火大会 全国花火まほろば競技会)
This fireworks festival, held in Uda City, Nara Prefecture, is the largest in the prefecture. The venue area is a basin where the sound and light reflected as well as resounding off of the surrounding mountains provides an especially powerful sensation. The fireworks display is the sole fireworks competition in the Kansai Region. Pyrotechnicians from all over Japan launch their creative fireworks, making an exhilarating attraction. The paid reserved seating area where the progression of the program, highlights, and the characteristics of each competing company are announced is only 150 meters from the launch site, an ideal spectator location.

With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
